Wind chill temperatures from 10 to 20 below zero will be common, with the coldest wind chill temperatures early New Year's Day morning.
"We've been watching it for a while and it seems like as the week progressed, the temperatures dropped", said general manager Steve Uhl. There is a small opportunity to see some sleet and/or freezing rain, especially in the northern and inland sections of the Coastal Bend, late tonight and into tomorrow. Afternoon highs will struggle to get out of the upper 30s Monday afternoon.
-9 for the morning low, the record is -12. Frost bite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken. Temperatures will finally moderate heading into the middle of the week.
Monday will also bring #2 of the Supermoon Trilogy.
Otherwise, some light snow could pop up, but chances are slight as the majority of the snow will result from lake-effect and therefore instead target the east-side lake-effect belt where a few inches are possible.
Happy New Year, and bundle up!
